Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

problem #1

May 252004

CR-V EX 4 cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 30,000 miles

Bought this car new. At around 30k miles, it starts getting this loose, rattling sound, when you go over bumps or a rough road. I live 1/2 mile off of a gravel road, so I hear it ALL of the time.

I have had it into the Honda dealer no less than 4x, and each time, they either can't fix it, or they fix it "a little", but soon, it's back to making this loose rattle sound. I even drove with a mechanic in the car. He heard it, too. He couldn't find anything wrong. They have replaced the struts several times under warranty. There appears to be no cracked suspension components or frame. I give up. I really hate this car. Their quality for 2002 suffered, in my opinion. I have other rants about this car.

Update from Jan 26, 2010: Now has 160,000 miles and still has same crappy noise.
